Thread: cannot install

  1. #1

    Unhappy cannot install

    okay well i just spent ages downloading the latest version of UDK and i clicked on it to begin installing it, then it began downloading .net framework. it got half way through the download (for .net framework) when suddenly my internet disconnected, it came up with an error message on the screen saying 'this program did not install correctly' and gave me two buttons, a 'yes it installed correctly' button and a 'reinstall' button, i clicked reinstall because i knew it didn't install, and it came up with an error message saying 'you must have at least windows XP service pack 3 installed, installer will now exit'. so i don't know why it's saying that? all that happened is i lost internet connection momenterally and all the sudden i need a weird service pack thing o.O? please help me! it didn't even begin installing and all ready it's not working i'm sad.

    seems to be all good by what the systems saying, but i still get message, maybe because i installed .net framework incorrectly? i recently installed .net framework but i don't know if i installed it correctly, is there a way of checking if i have installed .net framework correctly? (but thats a different matter, but the UDK is still not installing)

    Try running the install from a commandline with -progressonly on the end.

    Oh my... Thanks Shelley! I was running into the exact same problem too.

    @Wooolly
    Create a new iWantUdk.bat in the same directory as udk installer, edit it, and type it in: UDKInstall-2011-12-BETA -progressonly. Then you can launch iWantUdk.

    okay well i downloaded the november version because December version didn't like me, and i did start installing, but now it makes my laptop restart, why does the install make my laptop restart? my friend downloaded UDK as well, december version didn't work for him either, but november did work for him, including the install, but my install doesn't work keeps restarting my laptop.

    Try right-clicking and running the .exe with an older version of windows... I believe it says something about compatability issues. Also Run CMD as admin type dxdiag, make sure it comes back with directX version 11. If not install the new one... Recheck your .net framework version should be 4 and make sure you have the most recent MSXML version installed fully and correctly. Also you may be missing some Dll's.... Sorry this doesn't narrow anything down, but there's some possibilities.
